Just wanted some input on this incident I had on this past trip with my Parking brake.

When I was riding back from San Antonio to McKinney.
I used my parking brake in Austin at the Lonestar BMW dealer. At least I am pretty sure I did. Every time I have used it I knew it was engaged because I wouldn't move until I released it. Anyway, when we were riding through downtown Dallas while exiting off of I 35 to US 75 I noticed my parking brake light was on. When I had a chance I reached down to the lever to see what was going on and it was engaged. I released it.

I have no idea what caused this. How long it was engaged? I am surprised I did not notice this sooner. The bike was moving with no problem. Unless this happened when I had to slow down in heavy rush hour traffic and the brake slipped. The brake seemed fine after this incident.

Anyone have a clue how this could happen.

If your parking brake is set to not engage untell you pull it up 4-6 clicks and you only had it pulled up 1 or 2 clicks you would not have any hold and not hurt anything but the light would still be on. Wow that was a long sentence. I keep my parking brake to take hold at 2 or 3 clicks to avoid this. I had it happen when I first got my Silverwing. It is easy to adjust. Just put your bike on the center stand and pull your parking brake up two clicks. Then on your parking brake calliper you will see a headless bolt with a nut on it to lock it in place. Loosen the nut and spin the wheel. then turn the headless bolt in untell the wheel stops. Lock the nut while you hold the headless bolt. Put the bike back on the ground and check how the parking brake works. Hope this helps.Laughing

Parking brakes do not come on, on their own---rider responsibility!!----only on a couple of clicks maybe no harm----check dash lite or bike feel

I accidentally tried to drive off with the parking brake engaged. The bike barely moved, and I noticed a burnt smell. That's when I looked down and noticed the light on !
